Yes, without hesitation.

A beginner who wants to learn photography sets the dial on M and uses the dual knobs to set aperture and shutter. Nothing else. The fact that the camera has additional features is of no importance at this point. That comes later.

the only affirmative answer that makes any sense, except.............

Can't the E-p1/2/3 do the exact same thing with it's two control wheels?

I imagine they could, and then they too would be suitable for learning photography.

except they cost as little as 1/10th the cost of an OM-d.

Should that be considered as well?

Ah-ha! That wasn't part of the original problem. But of course, if the only objective is to learn photography, by all means get the cheaper one.

Isn't that what a "beginners" camera is for?
